I didn’t realize that Boise State has a federal trademark on its blue artificial turf. But it does. So when a high school that shares its football field with a college asked permission to install blue turf, the Broncos said no.
You may find BSU’s rationale for that pertinent.
She [Rachael Bickerton, director of trademark licensing and enforcement for the university,] compared the blue turf at Boise State to “Touchdown Jesus” at Notre Dame or “Between the Hedges” at the University of Georgia.
I wonder if anybody’s brought this to the attention of Stewart Mandel’s buddies in Montana.
